Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) is changing the paradigm of normal aging.
Healthy, aging women will have a predictable decline in the sex hormones, estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, leading to mood swings, poor sleep, fatigue, weight gain, loss of muscle mass, and loss of sex drive. They will also have increasing risk for heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and dementia.
Have heart, women, for there is something you can do about it! BHRT is rapidly gaining recognition as a safe and effective way to prevent many of the symptoms and diseases associated with aging.
When replacing hormones, we use only bioidentical hormones, which simply means they are 100% identical to our biology – that is, the molecular structure is exactly the same as that found in our body. Simply taking a pill that one swallows does not work and we recommend either a tablet that melts under the tongue or a cream that is absorbed through the skin.
Improved mood, energy, sleep, sex drive and general outlook will usually start within a few weeks of BHRT. It may take a few months to fully appreciate the improved stamina, muscle building, fat burning and weight loss effects of BHRT.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy prevents disease and helps maintain quality of life, and like other age management strategies, it is changing the paradigm of normal aging!
